Song of the week
#5 The Perfect MurderThis week in Gap Dong we see the copycat killer not only kill a second girl, but get away with it in a masterful way. It is hard to recreate the original killings when the police all are on the alert on what is going to happen. In the original murder the girl was picked up from a bus stop and found on January 7th under straw bales. She also was wearing a distinctive red article of clothing. In order to prevent a second murder the police take away all the aspects of the original crime by burning all the hay and shutting down the bus routes.
However our killer thought ahead and pre-killed his prey before the expected date. And instead of out in a field, she was covered in hay in her workshop. It is always nice when you can find a good evil character, and Lee Joon is the best I have seen in any drama. Can't wait to find out what happens next.
#4 Tal Tal and NyangThrough forty episodes I watched Nyang be emotionally involved with both King Wang Yoo and Emperor Ta Hwan, and while I have been a staunch Ta Hwan fan from the beginning, I think I am ready to jump away from both "ships" and put my support to team Tal Tal. Yes, I know that they don't have "that" kind of relationship, but a fan can dream. I love how he has slowly grown to respect her over the show and now is one of her staunchest supporters. Both feel a strong fondness for each other and their shared ideals for the country. It is a connection that has slowly surpassed any possible love line in this drama (at least for this viewer). Empress Ki ends this week and while I am not going to miss having it be part of my lineup (after 50 episodes it is time to say goodbye) I will miss seeing Tal Tal's pretty face on my screen every week.

#3 Father and Son ReuniteThe funniest reunion of the week, and our #3 spot, has to be between the father and son cop duo of Bitter Blood (Partners of Blood). Natsuki Sahara (Takeru Sato - Bloody Sunday) is a rookie detective assigned to the violent crimes division. Unfortunately for him he is now partnered up with his deadbeat dad, Akimura Shimao (Atsuro Watabe) who had deserted the family thirteen years earlier. At first glance, they are complete opposites. One is flashy and a ladies man, while the son is sensitive and emotional. They must not only learn how to work together as partners, but relearn how to be a family. Both characters are just all kinds of adorable and I love watching their antics. The fact that they are related just makes it all the better.

#1 A Witch's SeductionIt does not take a genius to know why I chose this as my #1 moment of the week (It might have been my number one of the previous week but since there was the hiatus I am extending it over). In episode 2 of Witch's Romance (be sure to check out my recaps of this drama) we see our OTP get a bit tipsy and then really really really really really steamy. Seriously how awesome is it that we get intense make out scene in episode 2. If we were going to measure it on a hotness/sexy meter it would definitely be a 10+. Check out the photos and clip for yourself to see why you should be watching this hilarious drama.
